Exemptions, Extensions, Course Content

Requests for exemption from training or for additional time to complete the training can be made one of two ways depending on the course. 

For the "All Staff" courses (Health and Safety Introduction, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Introduction, Prevent: Safe, Inclusive, Cohesive Universities, Information Governance) please use the SID Online system.  Log in and start a “New Enquiry”, choosing "Mandatory Training Dispensation" (not the Mandatory Training General Enquiry) from the “Category” drop down list. 

Dispensations must be sought on behalf of a member of staff, associate or casual worker by the line manager or requester (or an individual must attach an email to the enquiry from their line manager explaining why dispensation is being requested).  Dispensation can be requested for individual courses or for multiple courses.

For all other courses please refer to the Table of Mandatory training and contact the course sponsor / owner directly with your request.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The People Development Team can not authorise dispensations.

You will continue to receive the reminder emails but are not expected to complete the training until back at work.  You will continue to show as non-compliant but will not be subject to any disciplinary procedures.  You can apply for an extension by using the SID online process described in our FAQ on dispensations.
